4 Oral Ailments To Discuss With Your Dentist

Bad Breath Treatment North Tomball

This article is about some of the most frequent conditions that should be discussed with us, at The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston.

There is a solution for each one of these issues.

  • Tooth Decay. This is easily the most common dental problem. Tooth decay, or cavities, occur when plaque combines with the sugars and/or starches in food to produce acids that attack tooth enamel. We can always do a drill-and-fill, but prevention via regular brushing and flossing is best.
  • Dry Mouth. Also known as xerostomia, this lack of saliva is very bothersome and can predispose you to a host of dilemmas such as decay and gum disease. It’s a common side effect of prescription medications, so make sure to bring a list of current prescriptions with you to your appointment.
  • Jaw Issues. If you suffer from jaw pain or notice a clicking sound, be sure to schedule an appointment with us immediately. These symptoms can be signs of a condition called temporomandibular disorder, or TMD.
  • Dull Teeth. Even with regular brushing, most people see their smile grow dull over the years. Professional teeth whitening can revitalize them!
